Hi guys, looking for a contact for an inspector to issue poi on a replacement domestic switchboard please..
Property is in Mt Roskill.

Replacement of fittings is low risk PEW. Replacement of domestic switchboard requires installation of RCD protection as for a new installation, which is General PEW.

Note that ESR 6A specifically allows for "relocation or extension of a conductor to facilitate replacement of a fitting" as Low Risk PEW; which takes care of the fact that mains and / or main earthing conductor will be disconnected from old swbd and then connected to a new swbd in a slightly different position within the board. So as long as you're replacing in same location, there's no High Risk PEW, and you don't need to have the work inspected.
